Look Sharp Theatre are an exciting independent non-profit Leeds based company who specialise in comedy and farce. With four shows produced since November 2021, they are looking for new comedy writing for their 2023 season. This production will support their ambitions to become an associate artist with a professional theatre. It is a great opportunity to workshop your script and have it produced in Leeds. As they are a non-profit company, this is an unpaid opportunity.
The script must meet the following criteria to be eligible:
- Be a completed draft (at least 60 pages or more) but they are happy to workshop further drafts with you if needed
- Include no more than 8 characters (with a mix of genders)
- They are particularly interested in farcical comedies but will happily read any comedies submitted
- Suitable to be performed in a studio space (between 50-100 seat capacity) and ideally not a complex set
- Writers from Leeds and the Yorkshire region are preferred but they are happy to read submissions from writers outside of this area and the UK
Please email your script (ideally in PDF format) to email@example.com with the subject ‘2023 Script Submission’ by 23:59 on 18 December 2022. Please also include your name, email/contact information, where you are from/living currently and a brief synopsis of the play.
You can find out more via their Facebook page.
